  • You can find more information about charging a damage deposit here.

  • You need to provide your guests with an invoice when they check out. This is because the reservation agreement is a direct transaction between you and your guest, not a transaction with Booking.com. You can provide the invoice on paper, by email or both.

    Here’s some other important information about invoices:

    • We hold no responsibility for invoicing, and we don’t send invoices for any reservation to you or your guest.
    • Make sure you issue invoices in your guest’s name or another name you’ve agreed with them.
    • You can use your invoices for tax declarations or other record-keeping purposes.
  • For more information about invoices, take a look at this article.

  • If a guest makes changes to a reservation such as changing the number of guests, then you may need to raise or lower the reservation fee. To do so, please contact us to assist with any changes to the reservation.

  • The total amount shown on your invoice only includes amounts that we charge commission on, such as room rates, certain taxes and other charges. To find out more about local taxes, take a look at this article.
